The Mets just wrapped up a ten-game road trip with a 5-5 record to open the post-All-Star break part of the season, and they did so with some very good and some very bad pitching performances. With that, on to the meter!
|Vic Black, RHP
|Black gave up a run in two innings of work, but his appearance on Sunday was a huge part of the Mets’ victory.
|Buddy Carlyle, RHP
|Since the last player meter, Carlyle has been demoted and recalled, but his one outing with the Mets was a scoreless one.
|Bartolo Colon, P
|Colon made one not-so-great start and one start in which he took a perfect game into the seventh inning before Robinson Cano hit a two-out single to break it up.
|Jacob deGrom, RHP
|With two more great starts, deGrom further cemented his status as one of the best pitchers in the game over the last month. He ranks seventh over the last thirty days with a 1.39 ERA.
|Josh Edgin, LHP
|With three scoreless appearances, Edgin was back on track.
|Dana Eveland, LHP
|Like Edgin, Eveland put up a scoreless week.
|Jeurys Familia, RHP
|Familia gave up just one hit and one walk in 4.1 scoreless frames and struck out four in the process. He’s been outstanding, especially lately.
|Dillon Gee, RHP
|In ten innings over the course of two starts, Gee allowed hree home runs and ten runs in total. The slight silver lining here was that he struck out fourteen and walked just two over that span.
|Daisuke Matsuzaka, RHP
|After posting a 10.80 ERA in 3.1 innings over the last week-plus, Matsuzaka hit the disabled list because of pitching elbow problems.
|Jenrry Mejia, RHP
|Mejia continued his excellent season out of the bullpen with five more scoreless innings. He struck out seven and walked two, and he now has a 1.97 ERA and 2.73 FIP in that role this season.
|Jon Niese, LHP
|In total, Niese had a 5.73 ERA for the week. Like Gee, at least he posted a good strikeout rate, but better results would be preferable.
|Carlos Torres, RHP
|Torres’s great run came to an end here, as he gave up three runs in five innings.
|Zack Wheeler, RHP
|With sixteen strikeouts, three walks, and a 1.42 ERA over 12.2 innings in two starts, Wheeler again looked like a very good major league pitcher.
